Back from blacking

Leo No2 in dry dock
A quick trip back up from Yardley Gobion this morning with some CRT employees from London to give them an experience of boating.

A really quick trip up the Stoke Bruerne 7 in the company of Aber (a 1936/7 GUCC boat) with Mark and Lesley followed by a very enjoyable hour or so in the Boat.

Leo No2 is now safely moored in Stoke Bruerne courtesy of Roy Sears - thank you Roy.
